Bumper Repair on 2013 Mazda 3

Dented bumper on 2013 Mazda 3 before collision repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

The bumper on this poor Mazda 3 had a big dent & some scrapes. We replaced the bumper and painted it with original factory paint.

Matt Cresci's Mazda Miata Race Car

Matt Cresci Spec Miata at speed, painted at Almost Everything Auto Body.

Our friend Matt Cresci sent us a photo this week (via Yelp!) of the car we repaired & painted for him back in March 2016.

Matt commented, "Took my 1990 Spec Miata Racecar to get a full paint job and some quarter panel bodywork at Almost Everything. Frank was straightforward, reliable, and to the point. They color matched my desired color (BMW Imola Red) and it looks fantastic. The rear quarter panel repair was also very impressive, as they made my abnormal, basketball sized dent disappear completely, which I know was no easy task. One of the body shop guys even helped me load the car back on the trailer once it was ready for pickup (little things count too!)

"I got the car painted much earlier in the year (March 2016), but waited to post my review so that

    1. I had a good picture to share to accurately demonstrate AE's work
    2. I could judge paint quality over time

"And sure enough, it still looks great today. Very happy, and look forward to bringing some other cars of mine here in the future."

Thanks, Matt. We think it would look even better with some "Almost Everything" decals on it.

Here's what it looked like while it was at the shop:

Reviving Old 2-Tone Cars

2-Tone vehicle repainted in single color at Almost Everything Auto Body.

In the 1980s and 1990s two-tone cars were all the rage and showed that a vehicle was a premium model. Multiple colors on a car takes more material and labor. So it naturally costs more. But what do you do when one of these 20-30 year old cars needs to be repainted? Options include repainting both colors, repainting only the top color which is often more faded, painting only the bottom color which can be more prone to scrapes, or repainting the entire car in just one color. Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1996 Mazda MPV that was faded & peeling on top and scraped on the bottom. So both of the 2-tone colors had problems. The owner decided to paint the entire vehicle one color to save money and recover a vehicle that still drove well but looked a mess.

Before:

After:

Happy Ending for Wrecked, Plasti Dipped Mazda 3

Mazda 3 with peeling Plasti Dip before repainting at Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a wrecked, "Plasti Dipped" 2010 Mazda 3. Someone installed a bumper, fender and a junk yard door then sprayed the car with Plasti Dip (a rubber coating made to insulate hand tools.) "Plasti Dipping" is a recent trend. It costs about the same as our least expensive paint job and you get an interesting, soft rubber surface. Almost Everything does not offer Plasti Dip (that's the "almost" part) because on cars it quickly fades and peels and removing it is a chore. See http://www.plastidip.com/blog/2012/08/plasti-dips-removal-tips/.

When this poor car came to us it was fading, peeling and multi-colored. We told the customer if they could get the Plasti Dip off, we'd paint it.

After:

The customers did their best to remove the peeling Plasti Dip before dropping off the car. If any Plasti Dip remains, it will cause the new paint to peel. So we do not provide warranties on cars that have been "Plasti Dipped."

1997 Mazda Miata Auto Painting

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1997 Mazda Miata that came to us with faded paint and some half-finished body repairs. The customer asked us to finish the bodywork, repaint it with our least expensive enamel and keep to a modest budget. We think it turned out nice.
